Trenton Area Stakeholders (TAS) brings together a diverse extended support network of community leaders who initiate and sustain efforts that have a strong positive impact on the youth and families of Greater Trenton. Originally developed as a youth leadership initiative in 1995 by the Princeton Center for Leadership Training (PCLT), the group evolved into a more comprehensive endeavor that sought to engage a wide variety of strengths, talents and collaborators focused on strengthening Greater Trenton in order to, in turn, support and nurture its local youth and families.
PCLT sustained TAS through its early years and then in 1999, believing wholeheartedly in the concept of local leadership, transitioned coordination of the group to Millhill. TAS continued to flourish, bringing together a vibrant group of community leaders and activists from a broad range of fields that linked in numerous collaborations, large and small, for the betterment of Greater Trenton.
Two TAS milestone accomplishments attributable to its activism and collaboration include Rider’s ‘Minding Our Business’ which sponsors youth interested in turning their entrepreneurial ideas into business plans and Millhill’s ‘Trenton PEERS,’ which fosters youth leadership by strengthening peer-to-peer networking and encouraging academic goals.
TAS provides an ongoing forum for open sharing in order to foster collaborations and necessary dialogue that will strengthen Greater Trenton as a place to live and work.

Reunite and Celebrate! September 14, 2022
What a wonderful Trenton Area Stakeholders meeting we had this week! Over 90 people attended our first post-pandemic meeting to “Reunite and Celebrate” – so many attendees that we had to cut-off registration a few days in advance. Special thanks goes to our host, Grounds For Sculpture, for sharing their beautiful facilities with us on such a gorgeous late-summer day!
In addition to reacquainting and networking, we celebrated Calvin Thomas, TAS’s outgoing facilitator, and also welcomed Karen Andrade-Mims, TAS’s incoming facilitator. And our meeting host Julio Badel, GFS’s Director of Education & Community Engagement, invited attendees to participate in 4 workshops offered as part of the meeting: Meditation, Ceramics, Wellness Walks, and Tai Chi.
